Kate Wright’s painting is imbued
with her fascination for natural history expressed with a personal narrative . In addition to her two-dimensional works in water color and oils, she creates furniture pieces (often created from family antiques brought to her for special individualized commissions or custom-built by her husband). These functional “canvases” often include carved wood 3-dimensional additions "growing" from the surface to serve as delightful drawer pulls and handles . Her work has been shown around the Midwest as well as the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. and is in private collections throughout the US.
